FUURT webinar: Grant Information for Researchers 28.5.

28.05.2021 klo 12:00 – 13:00

Most researchers’ careers include both grant-funded periods and working in employment relationships. Even if the content of the research work would be roughly the same, working under a grant differs from an employment relationship in many ways. Therefore, the working life skills of every academic include knowing the basics of working under a grant.

FUURT’s revised Grant Information for Researchers Guide presents the general practices and considerations for working with a grant. The guide will be published during the webinar and we will share some of its highlights. What are the differences between grant work and employment relationship? What are the pros and cons of independent scientific work? And what should you know about Mela insurance and unemployment security?

FUURT’s Senior Adviser Miia Ijäs-Idrobo and Union Lawyer Salla Viitanen introduce these theme and Johanna Moisio, FUURT’s Executive Director, leads the discussion.

The webinar is free of charge and open to everyone (max 300 participants).


Registration is open until 26 May. Teams link for the webinar will be emailed to participants the day before the event.
